Make My Monday has a new challenge today – “Use a Stencil” – so once again I brought out the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks from the mini catalog. This time I used the background floral stencil and sponged Petal Pink ink with a blending brush. It wasn’t till I started this blog post that I realized that there was no stamping at all on this card. Although it was absolutely unintentional, I really love that the word dies don’t cover up the stencilled background. Then, the pretty flower from the Pierced Blooms dies was a sweet detail to bring it all together.

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Make My Monday Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the deadline of April 10!

My secrets to making this project

  • This card was supposed to be an A6 size card, but it ended up at 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″ due to the stitched rectangle. No worries!

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Firstly, I taped white cardstock to my craft mat, then placed the stencil over it and taped that in place. Using a blending brush, I added Petal Pink ink over the stencil till I was happy with the ink color.
  • After that, I cut black and white cardstock with the the Amazing Thanks dies. Secret: I laid the white cardstock onto a piece of adhesive sheet before cutting it with the dies, and it made putting the words together a piece of cake!
  • Then, I cut out the Pierced Blooms flower, leaves and stem, with the flower being popped up with dimensionals.
  • Finally, I added a few Classic Matte dots onto the flower center as well as a few of the stencilled flowers to finish the card with just the perfect amount of bling.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
